Not too long ago a debate started about whether reality TV stars and the work they do is enough to warrant them one day receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The folks doing the actual placement of said stars said that they don’t consider reality stars for such honors, including Kim Kardashian. Kanye West responded by saying their way of doing things is dated and that Kim is more than deserving since she’s one of the biggest stars in the world. However, most folks agree that being famous for living your life on TV isn’t enough to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and it seems that current reality personality Kandi Burruss feels the same. In an interview with The Jasmine Brand she said it’s something that needs to be earned with a little more work:
“I don’t know about all that. I don’t really think that that would… To me, I don’t really see – not just for being a reality TV star. You’ve got to be doing something other than reality just in order to get a star on the Walk of Fame. I mean, to me, with reality, they’re just being themselves and they’re a little crazy. Some of the people who are on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – to me, they’ve really worked hard to earn that. So I don’t know about this…that’s different.”
Some might try to say, ‘Well, you’re on reality TV,” but Burruss is also an acclaimed songwriter and has had a pretty successful music career. But do you agree with her about reality stars not really qualifying for such a prestigious honor?
